Early 20th century bright and polychrome Capodimonte Porcelain centerpiece with Cherubs, a very decorative antique Italian porcelain bowl consisting in an oval cup featuring a richly decoration with fruit festoons and bunches of grapes symbolizing abundance, fertility and spirit of life.
This antique Italian hand-painted figural porcelain bowl is supported by seven Cherubs standing on an oval base with gilded profiles and with four lovely fruit shaped feet. Putti proliferate in popular culture, in decorative arts they are wingless male child figures, classical motif often depicted in mythologic Bacchus rites.
